Whew! Only four more days until we see the end of February! Are you as excited as I am?
When I visit my favourite English blogs I have been feeling a teensy bit envious to see their snowdrops, and crocus shoots, and tiny tree buds. I know Spring will come here, eventually, and in the meantime I certainly have enough little things on the go to keep me busy.
I finished the 'C' block of my Stitcher's Alphabet:
I changed the colours just a bit: I prefer the softer corals to the oranges the chart calls for. Now I move down onto the next row of D - H. That should take me until mid or end of May if I can keep on track.
Before Christmas I purchased some Scrub It yarn from Mary Maxim. It is a cotton yarn with a bit of fringe on it, meant to use for kitchen scrubbies. I have been hooking away, trying out all sorts of scrubbies. I made some roses:
I still need to add some leaves and a hanging loop to these. I think I might try the larger ones in the shower instead of on my dishes.
I made a puff and several double sided and single sided circle scrubbers:
I think I like the single thickness circles best: they are quicker to make and I think they will dry out faster than the double thickness ones. I still have a lot of yarn left, so there should be many more scrubbies in my future!
I got a mad urge to make cotton dishcloths as well. I'm not sure if it was just the desire to make up something quickly, or colourful, or my impending kitchen re-paint. Thankfully Michaels had a sale on Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, so I was able to get my 'fix' in a few evenings.
That's it for today. Stay warm if your climate is anything like mine at the moment, and thank you so much for visiting. Your comments make my day!
